Life for Davy was glorious as long as he had his mother and father to himself. But then he got a brother, Petey. When Davy sang, Petey cried. When Davy created a masterpiece, Petey spat up on it.
And then he got another brother, Mike! And another, Stu! And another, Gil! Until he had TWELVE LITTLE BROTHERS! And that was only the beginning!

Praise for Another Brother

“Older brothers and sisters will surely relate to Davy's sibling struggles, but even younger sibs will have a baaaaa-ll with this one.” —BCCB

“Cordell emphasizes the humor in the once only child's whiplash of conflicting emotions. Baby brothers may be a pain, but the havoc they create can be painfully funny.” —

“Funny and touching in equal measure, this is a sheepish look at how imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, even when it is super annoying.” —Booklist

“Cordell's (Trouble Gum) goofy line drawings of Davy the sheep and his dozen copycat younger brothers provide an entertaining counterpoint to his poker-faced narrative.” —Publishers Weekly

“This is not just another new-baby book: Cordell's humorous text and mischievously silly, expressive cartoon art will have readers bleating to read it again and again.” —Kirkus, starred review

“The pen-and-ink and watercolor artwork is filled with humorous detail. Think Richard Scarry's warmth and scale, with a minimalist approach to setting. The psychology of the oldest child is well chronicled here.” —School Library Journal, starred review
